Description

Newsnight 23 July 2014 On Tuesday, Bradford East MP, Ward was accused of inciting violence after he tweeted: "The big question is - if I lived in Gaza would I fire a rocket? - probably yes." With one eye on the general election and the powerful Jewish lobby, the Tories immediately piled-in with their fake outrage at the tweet with Grant Shapps and Zahawi leading the charge. Nadhim Zahawi's all about faking outrage for political gain as he proved over the bedroom tax spat with the UN's Raquel Rolnik last autumn (see my blog to view the clip) and in this interview he's at it again.
